Traditional Wedding Is Planned with Fall Colors in Mind for Wedding Photographer

A traditional wedding just south of Chicago begs for fall colors and that just what the Fiona Image wedding photographer got for Michelle and Justin wedding. The couple wanted candid shots of their elegant wedding party set in the beautiful outdoors of Waukegan, IL.

The Venue

The couple chose the Glen Flora Country Club at 2200 N Sheridan Road in Waukegan, IL. According to the Glen Flora Country Club website, they are centrally located near Lake Forest, Green Oaks, and Libertyville. They are considered one of the premier wedding venues in Lake County. The staff there knows just what all of your wedding guests will expect, they plan to deliver “the best” in all things. The staff hopes to do everything possible to make sure that the wedding arrangements are perfect to match the best day of the couple’s lives

The Glen Flora Country Club says that ceremonies, receptions and rehearsal dinners are managed with the utmost care by experienced Banquet Staff. They can handle large events and intimate affairs.

The City

Waukegan, IL is just south of Chicago. It’s actually county seat and is considered part of the Chicago Metropolitan Area. There are nearly 90,000 people living in Waukegan, so it will have all of the conveniences your wedding guests have come to expect; however, it does offer a smaller town feel than the windy city. From golf and recreation to shopping and dining, the area surrounding Waukegan will accommodate just about anything couples may need ahead of the big day. If your traditional wedding is a destination wedding for your guests, they are merely a train-ride away from one of the most iconic cities in the country.

Depending on your ceremony, your wedding photographer will have no shortage of scenery to capture your traditional wedding. Waukegan does offer park and water views. The fall was in full swing for Micelle and Justin, so they wanted to show off the foliage of the Mid-West. Depending on the time of year for other couples wanting to get married near Chicago, consider the sweeping city-scape views from the Skydeck Chicago or Signature Room on the 95th. Or maybe beautiful oasis of Lincoln Park.


Chicago has thousands of acres of green space to choose from, art galleries dot the streets and museums are never more than a few blocks away. Your guests will have no trouble finding things to do surrounding the ceremony time. Food from the far corners of the earth is a mere stone’s throw away in this metropolis, they can cater to your guests’ every craving around the clock!
